Posted by wlpo on January 16, 2015

If you were one of nearly 300 brave souls that plunged into the chilly Illinois River in Ottawa for the Make-A-Wish Foundation, you were part of the state’s biggest Make-A-Wish fundraiser.

Final fundraising numbers will be announced next Thursday at the “After Plunge Party” at Heritage Harbor in Ottawa. As of January 3rd when the Penguin Plunge happened, over $85,000 had been raised. This year’s goal is $100,000.

The average “wish” is $7,500.
